  1. Fitted the oil cooler, remote oil filter, fuel pressure regulator and re did the lower intercooler mounts. Dummy fitted the intercooler pipes. So far the hot side lines up with the new turbo. Will need to check the intake side when I dummy fit the plenum. I also had to buy new injectors as the spray pattern on my 1150s were sub par due to sitting for a while with E85. Went 1650s for future headroom [emoji16] Just need to do the oil cooler lines, fuel lines and new power steering lines. Then start on the wiring with my brother in law.
  2. I never has AC in this car. It's possible to retain. But I think you need to invert the intercooler or run gtsr style AC lines?
  3. Transmission is in.... What a c you next Tuesday. The cheap asses at Nissan couldn't even include a slave cylinder with a brand new transmission. I upgraded the clutch fork and pivot ball whilst I was there to a Z33 item and Nismo pivot ball to suit the fork. Will need to make new power steering hoses too. The R33 lines to suit the rack and pump go behind the oil pan but infront of the subframe. Unfortunately with an extended pan there is no room to remove them if the ever needed to. So going to get the HR31 lines and the R33 line as a template and get some made up to suit the rack and pump. Next up is some easier stuff. Going to focus on plumbing for the intercooler and radiator. By then should be able to work out where to run the oil filter and lines for oil cooler.
  4. With the help of a few mates engine & clutch is in!!! Had some trouble with the ATI balancer I got from Erics Performance in the USA. It's supposed to suit R33 GTS-25T i.e. ECR33 but the pulley for the PS pump is 4 rib, whilst my factory S1 R33 PS pump is 3 rib. I've emailed them to explain and see if they can send me the correct pulley. I spent enough on it assuming it was to suit the engine/PS pump combination so I'm hoping they sort it out.
  5. Yup. 9.0:1 CP from Spool Imports. But the piston sits above the deck by about 30 thou; so we had to run a thicker head gasket.
  6. Progress being made. (intake only dummy fitted). Have a heap of braided lines to make up over the Xmas break and drop the motor in.
  7. Sounds like it will be spastic fast with a 30. What are your plans for the squat with all that torque?
  8. Donk is back. Just waiting on some fittings for the head drain/ventilation and heater lines. Then will put on accessories and drop in over xmas break
  9. RB25 Alternator sold. Have a Cometic 1.3 MLS Head Gasket for RB25. This came in my spool kit but I ended up going a Nitto gasket. New sealed $150 (priced to sell)
  10. Bottom end is together. High comp pistons sit above the deck so gonna have to exchange the head gasket for a thicker one. DOH! ARP crank bolt is walkabout, so need to see if it actually turned up with the rest of the stuff. Head will be modified to clear the cams next week; and the week after the long motor should be assembled and ready for block to be painted; final clean, and assembly.
  11. Crank balanced and grub screwed. Hoping the bottom end is together this week. New GTR throttles arriving tomorrow. Most of the big purchases are done now. Just a new tail shaft yoke for the 25 box and some oil lines left really. Worked out if I spend every second weekend from when the engine gets back (ideally by mid Nov at latest) I will have it running and driving ~Aus Day in Jan. Fingers crossed.
  12. Engine progress is slow... Waiting on the crank to be balanced then the bottom end can be assembled. Valve seats are cut (verified myself today) Cams ended up hitting the head so needs some more machining (so much for drop ins). Some small tidying up on the oil drain castings at the back of the head, skim the head then final assembly. I plan to drop the motor back in the engine bay over xmas holidays. Hope to have it running by Aus day long weekend.
  13. RB Alternators. RB20DET alternator. Purchased new 15k ago. Might condition. $100ono RB25DET alternator. Came off the running RB25DET I purchased. Looks like a second hand wrecker alternator. $50. Went LS1 alternator so surplus to needs. Turbosmart Fuel pressure regulator. FPR800. Upgraded to FPR1200 so surplus to needs. $100
